together. part of that is the practical access to the insurance coverage, which the law, unfortunately, does not guarantee for the small employers. are there planning opportunities? yes. we see small employers trying to use those to avoid compliance with the law? not yet. i think part of the lack of awareness is a little bit of a reaction to the delays that have occurred. believe there have been delays and those delays will continue. for smaller businesses, there is a sentiment that the rules for the larger employers were delayed, which they were until 2015. however, for the smaller businesses they smell many of them on the brunt of the expensive renewals this year. they offer an early renewal option to renew their policy this december and to delay the cost impacts of health reform. invariably they have taken that offer. they have basically kicked the issue down the road for another year. we will hear more about that next fall. it is a matter of the law providing access to coverage with no pre-existing conditions. it is not by any means affordable, even for the small businesses. the sm

for dealing with those who a broken our laws. my thanks to the navcp for this ambitious undertaking. there are perhaps four or five courts in january 2009, as i arrived to assume these responsibilities at the v.a., and that barry mccaffrey's urging i went to visit judge russell. the power of the veterans court concept right then was clear, undeniable, and compelling, and since that visit v.a. has been your full partner, agreed to bring all its capabilities to bear where ever a judge decided to establish a veterans court, and that offer is still good today. last month v.a.'s justice outreach specialist reported courts and operation throughout the country. an increase of nearly 90% this past year alone, with another dozen or so slated to open for before the end of the year. and so my thanks and congratulations to all of you for what you have done for veterans. in my opinion, we will never be able to do enough for the men and women who have signed on to safeguard our way of life. veterans comprise just over 7% of the entire population of this great country. 22 .2 million of them live a

congress in terms of education laws, either major ones were smaller things? >> the first thing i would actually like to see in congress is comprehensive immigration reform. i mean, if you look at what the senate did, there is a path there that a lot of people compromised on to create the path to citizenship plus ways of making sure that we take people out of the shadows, we grow our economy, and we make sure our borders are secure. and so first and foremost, the house of representatives needs to focus on that. and i was part of the fast for families yesterday. having been arrested on the whole process of trying to get to immigration reform and whatnot. in terms of education, this is an issue. pre-k is an issue about showing whether the results actually really matter and what the research actually really matters, or whether the congress lives in an evidence-free zone. we have seen pre-k actually works to help level the playing field. the president has put a bill out there. the house of representatives actually have a bipartisan bill, that lies in the house of representatives and the sen
